Dear Semantic Sensor Network Incubator Group members,

>From a recent W3C communication MPEG learned that W3C has recently launched an Incubator Group on Semantic Sensor Network. In that context we want to inform you that MPEG has recently started work on a new standard ISO/IEC 23005 (MPEG-V) that provides an architecture and specifies associated information representations to enable the interoperability between virtual worlds, e.g., digital content provider of a virtual world, (serious) gaming, simulation, DVD, and with the real world, e.g., sensors, actuators, vision and rendering, robotics (e.g. for revalidation), (support for) independent living, social and welfare systems, banking, insurance, travel, real estate, rights management and many others.

The MPEG-V standard addresses the following areas:

*         Standardization Area A: Control Information

o   This area covers the information representation of the control information to and from devices in the physical world. Examples of these representations are the representation of sensory input devices like smart vision systems, environmental and body sensors and the like and sensory output rendering devices like lights, heaters, fans, displays, speakers and the like.

*         Standardization Area B: Sensory Information

o   This area covers the (bidirectional) information representation of information exchanged between the physical world and the virtual world as well as the information exchange between virtual worlds. Examples of these representations are the representation of haptic, emotion and avatar information.. Please note that this section will be extended with more details on the standardization areas when available.

More background information is available in the following MPEG output documents:

1.      Information exchange with Virtual Worlds: Context, Objectives and Use Cases (N9424)

2.      Requirements for MPEG-V Version 3 (N10235)
that can be found on the MPEG web site since at http://www.chiariglione.org/mpeg/working_documents.htm#MPEG-V

We would welcome a future cooperation between both our groups and look forward to your reaction.

With kind regards, on behalf of MPEG-V, Jean Gelissen.
